An Aquatic Biology graduate and experienced scuba diver, Toby Gibson is passionate about exploring the surreal beauty of our underwater world - from coral reefs in tropical seas to the eerie depths of Welsh quarries. Toby is the former Web Manager for WLT, with over 10 years’ experience in website management and development, but recently embarked on a career change to follow his ambition to become a professional freelance photographer. He has been specialising in taking underwater images for over a decade and the selection of pictures being showcased at the World Land Trust gallery were photographed in the Galapagos Islands, Maldives and the Philippines.
During his trip to the Philippines, Toby stayed on Danjugan Island - the island that was saved thanks to donations d by WLT supporters - giving him first-hand experience of our partner’s conservation work on the ground. Through his photography, Toby highlights the beauty of the natural world while continuing to raise awareness about the need to protect it.
